I was running 12.04 but got tired of a random known kernel issue where playing media, usually flash in a browser, would crash X. I finally upgraded to 12.10 and I no longer have that issue. I now instead have spotty network traffic. You can open any browser you like I have tried chrome and firefox. If you open three tabs and open popular sites like msn.com, yahoo.com, and theverge.com one of the tabs might appear to load while the others partially load and all show a spinning icon on their tab until they finally die out. It also cuts large file transfers. It is not my connection as other devices on the network work perfectly on my 30M down connection. I assume it's something to do with the sky2 module but I don't have anything to back it up because it says everything is working normally in the logs. I tried the 12.10 live disc and have the same result. 12.04 live disk is fine. Any help is appreciated. I have not tried a 32bit image yet.

also forgot to mention that I thought this may be due to slow ipv6 settings so I black listed ipv6 in modprobe and and set ipv6 to ignore in network manager.
